Our Crystal Boudoir Show  is Sydney's best and longest running Cabaret and Burlesque show performing on Saturday nights. Evoking classic vintage glamour in the style of 1920s Paris, the Crystal Boudoir Show presents artful and dream-like performances. There are a lot of stilettos while a contortionist in a Crystal black cat suit pokes her sinuous leg up and over her head, a touch of vaudeville that leaves the audience gobsmacked. Between acts, a saxophonist plays a seductive groove, the perfect accompaniment to the killer cocktails. GPO Crystal Bar is the best place to drink and grab tasty gourmet cheeseburgers in Sydney. There's plenty of beverages on hand and all the bottles are positioned in a specially designed ice trough, which allows the alcohol to be chilled to exactly the right temperature while still remaining on display.
On selected Saturday Nights,  Crystal Bar opens its door from 9pm and Crystal Boudoir Cabaret Show commences at 9:30pm, followed by a public dance floor for guests to enjoy till late. Also, PIMP 'Male Esque' Cabaret Show is also performed on selected Saturday evenings in Coach Bar within GPO Building.

Crystal Bar has introduced a new gourmet burger range showcasing a selection of specialty artisan cheeses.
With inspiration from the 100 different seasonal cheeses on offer at GPO Cheese and Wine Room, Crystal Bar's Gourmet Burger Restaurant offers fromager hand-picked cheeses with sharp, bold flavours and creaminess to complement the fresh, quality ingredients on the burgers, including our housemade tartare-style beef patty.
Choose from Truffle Brie from the Parisian region of France, Blue Gorgonzola from Piedmont, Italy and Heidi Farm Gruyère Cheese from Exton, Tasmania.
Our gourmet burgers feature a grilled-to-order Black Angus beef patty inspired by signature tartare from Prime Restaurant. These gourmet grilled burgers are made fresh daily with 100% grain-fed Black Angus shoulder with the ideal 80% beef, 20% fat ratio and imported spices from France for a distinctive flavour.
For a non-beef alternative gourmet grilled burger, there is a Chargrilled Chicken Fillet Burger with housemade chilli sauce, creamy mayonnaise and fresh lettuce, or a Chickpea, Sweet Potato, Sweet Corn and Quinoa Burger with haloumi cheese, roasted tomato chilli jam and tahini cream.
